Singing in the rain


Gardeners in Central Europe have different problem then wind and rain and wind and rain.
For majority of April and almost totally in May we had drought. Sunny, 28-30 degrees of Celsius, but drought. All flowers bloomed later and rhododendrons even did not bloom (at least some).
On a Medard everything changed.
We have sun – short heavy shower – sun – short rain – sun – SHOWER – sun – sun – storm. So fine, high humidity and things started to move in the garden.
Have a look, for instance, on my olive at the end of May.

…and now…

Or hortensia serrata explosed from 2 cm green buds into coffee plates with popping first flower…

I noticed a very intensive migration of slugs – some highways are jammed…
Fig tree and sage explosed in growing, too.

So, water belongs to life and the garden messengers -coming always in three (remember that :))) Kasia knows it) – are singing now more vigorously then before.

Your garden looks as if its thriving Katarina and you will have a good harvest of olives.
Just loved the card and verse.

Thank you, Stroller, I just do not know how to harvest olives correctly and how to process them. Must write to Greece...:)
